BREAKING: DTC wins Regional Theatre Tony

This just in from Brad Pritchett, director of marketing and communications for Dallas Theater Center (and DVtv host):

Dallas Theater Center has won the 2017 Regional Theatre Tony Award. Brad said on Facebook, “We will be receiving the 2017 Regional Theatre Tony Award in New York City on June 11 and I couldn’t be more proud of our staff, our board, our artists and our audiences. For those of you who don’t know what this means, it’s like the Superbowl, Oscars or Grammy’s for theater. It’s huge. Like real huge.”

Congrats to Brad and all our friends at DTC.

BREAKING: DTC adds summer musical to season

For the last three seasons, the Dallas Theater Center has extended its season into the summer with a family-friendly musical: Sarah Plain and Tall, It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superman and The Wiz. But not was on the calendar when the season was released last spring.

Well, artistic director Kevin Moriarty has fixed that. Today, he announced the addition of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, directed and choreographed by Joel Ferrell, to the season. (We wrote about how valuable Ferrell is to the Dallas arts scene and DTC here; he’s done Joseph before, in Plano, to great acclaim.) Not only is it a bonus show, but it will be there for an eight week run — pretty long for regional theater.
